Forum Title: A few questions on the Chain Gang...
I attended the class How to stripe the tough jobs at the npe and love the chain gang. I think I know the answer to my primary question, but wanted to hear from the guys that have used them. These questions relate to inside and outside radius. If your stalls don't layout to an even 9 foot what do you do? Do you shorten the chains if needed? What if your stalls need to be 9'3 and you only have 18' of chain? If you shorten the width chain do you have to shorten the side chains equally? Any and all help appreciated! Thanks!

A little trial and error to get it right at 9’3”. This can also be done with an auto layout if you have one. Me personally I would make them 9’ because no matter what one end of the stalls will be wider anyway. It keeps it simple, and will come out flawless. If you end up with a little extra space make it the furthest stall from the building or last in the row. And yes you would to make all sides of the triangle equal. Otherwise your triangle won’t layout at a true 60 degrees. So your stalls won’t be squared.
